I'm a Norfolk, Virginia native who's happily transplanted to Richmond.
Art is not my background but creating has always been a part of my make-up. I remember as a 5 year old sitting under my Mom's sewing table turning a shoebox and yarn into a long-handled purse. Again at 5, I 'borrowed' my daddy's hand drill to make more holes in my new pegboard table. (Definitely not a smart move) I've always loved making stuff---forts, costumes, macrame, paper flowers, blanket chests, clothes---but never with paint because I thought I could not draw.
Painting became a PASSION just a few short years ago after I was gifted a 5-day course in pastels. What was my husband thinking? Reluctantly I attended 'most' of the classes offered during those 5 days ... (my husband LOVES to tell the tale of why and when I played hooky). I returned from that trip to 'art camp' and rarely a day passes when I do not draw or paint. Go figure!
Welcome to my studio. Feel free to look around.
